This week Dave and Steel are joined by the artist Jack Bangerter, who many listeners have long suspected was merely a figment of Steel’s imagination. This week’s episode proved for once and all that he is, in fact, a real human being. Together the three of them discussed their great summer vacation memories, discussed some ideas for meaningful social change, talked about art and creative processes with Jack, who makes his living as a painter, played music to make art to by Barry White, The National, William Basinski, The Beach Boys, Mutual Benefit, and Rostam, and Jack shared some book wisdom from the 19th century French painter Paul Gauguin.
